Police in Madrid Tuesday found the body of an American student who had been missing for almost two weeks, after draining part of the city's river, a police source said.

The cause of death was not yet known but there were "no signs of violence" on the body of 22-year-old Austin Bice which was found in the Manzanares river, the source said.

Bice, a student at San Diego State University who was on an exchange programme in Madrid, was reported missing after heading home alone early on February 26 after a night out with friends, according to Spanish media.

Police had drained a section of the river in the west of the city near where Bice was last seen before finding his body there, the source said.
